end up defining president obama's foreign policy over the next four years. it's a real challenge, folks, and one that doesn't get enough attention. >>> we're going to stick with the foreign policy theme. this week we're meeting one of our new members of congress. today we're talking to tammy duckworth from illinois. she'll lean heavily on her own military credentials and experience to knock off a tea party incumbent, joe walsh. duckworth is one of 16 iraq or afghanistan veterans in the new congress. and one of the first two female combat veterans ever to serve. she made national headlines when she talked about being wounded in iraq during a speech at the 2008 democratic convention and told the story again in 2012. >> a rocket-propelled grenade hit our helicopter, exploding in my lap, ripping off one leg, crushing the other, and tearing my right arm apart. but i kept trying to fly until i passed out. and in that moment, my survival and the survival of my entire crew depended on all of us pulling together. their heroism is why i'm alive today. >> she lost both legs and part of the
president obama's sworn in on monday. >> and different thing than we saw four years ago but really, today, interesting development with this debt ceiling negotiations. you have got, mark, the republicans at their retreat coming out now saying that they want to have a temporary extension, the white house saying essentially this is that same kick the can move that we have seen from lawmakers in washington, d.c. so when you look at the numbers and how the republicans have an all-time low, the president is higher than he's been in his first term as far as approval. how do we jive that in again with this latest battle? we kind of see where the american people sides with likability and doesn't break the stalemates with house republicans. >> it doesn't but, tamron, i think today's development at the very short term is a significant break. president obama talking about breaking the quote/unquote fever of republicans and looking at what they have proposed is taking the battle away from the debt ceiling and moving it to having the senate duke it out over the budget process. of course, this means we
the can if you will, new year's eve, goes down the road, the pluses, it gives obama a little breathing room, especially as he tries to see what congress wants to do with the package of measures to curb gun violence. maybe this little breathing room can let him launch some work on passing immigration reform. >> let me play what house republican whip kevin mccarthy said a short time ago regarding this latest action. >> the senate has never passed a budget. it is the rule and the law that by april 15th you have to so we're saying is, we will extend the debt limit until the time line where you have a budget. a road map. so you stop digging yourself in the hole that we get out of this problem. >> keith, carry reid issued a statement saying it's reassuring to see republicans beginning to back off the threat to hold our economy hostage. if the house can pass a clean debt ceiling increase and meeting the existing obligations we will be happy to consider it. here we are as i said three days before inauguration and it looks like another fight that the republicans are not prepared to it seems to

confrontational attitude towards that they try to atracking poll. 49% for obama. 67% in the polls four years ago. 18 point decline from that. the way that he is operating is not designed to make him more popular and bring the country together. >> now, one of the people that is thought to be a competitor to the democrats in the next presidential election is governor chris christie of new jersey. recently the nra took out an add saying that president obama is a hypocrite because he sends his children to school protected by armed guards and that he doesn't want armed guards at other schools. christie didn't like that ad by the nra and said this. >> don't be dragging people's children into this. it's wrong. and i think it demeans them. and it makes them less of a valid, trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate. >> so what did you think? >> well, a reasonable objection to the nra, remember, he is from new jersey, a blue state. he has got to get reelected this year. and he has a legitimate beef with the ad. i frankly think the underlying point of the nra ad accurate o
't you failing the country, say the insurgents? the answer, the country chose obama, he gets four years. want to save the republic? win the next election. liz, if charles krauthammer recommending the gop be less intransigent, do you think inside those meetings going on this weekend there will be some message, some form of that message? >> look, i think there's an amazing amount of soul searching going on within the republican party right now. and it's a troubled time for the party because there is no single standard bearer. it's not as if there's one leader who is charting a course and saying, yes, we're going to compromise or no, we're not. and -- and so, you know, the fact remains in the last two national elections presidential elections, the republicans lost. so they've got to figure out a way to listen to those voters who, you know, decide close elections. it's the middle of america. and the middle of america has said repeatedly, get something done. we'll see if the republicans listen. >> and alex, you know, they've brought in a pollster this weekend, they want to talk about, for ex
or for this president who is entering his second term. over the past four years in the face of obama's anti business attitudes and policies, the market has responded with love and excitement. the dow jones industrials has gone from 7,000, 7,949, are you ready for this, 13,649. pretty good by any standard. 5700 points. this is a guy who does not like wall street and does this. the s&p has gone from 805 to 1485. 1400's. 1485. that is a pretty substantial gain as well. 680 points. doing pretty good. the nasdaq is gone from 1440, 1440 to 3134. 3134. a mere 1700 points. but despite that improvement in the market a new poll from the health fined 60 percent of us don't expect any significant economic progress over the next four years of his presidency. only 38 percent of us say that we expect to be better off. that outlook doesn't change at the president does offer strong and positive leaders on the issues that matters the most americans. but the issues that matter most are not gun-control, not immigration, not even education. according to the most recent gallup poll, 21 percent of americans said the numbe

with the inauguration coming up in a couple of days from president obama in the next four years. take a listen to what he has to say -- >> i would like to see him pay attention to more environmental issues. i think it's too dire. i think the situation is too dire. the law of entropy is so extreme right now. the planet is shrinking. it's being divvied up, carved up, dug up, and what are we thinking about future generations? are we going to leave them anything? and so i think it's in the hands of leadership and also the public to speak to this. i hope he does. >> reporter: now, we also talked about the fact that there's little-known films that become big hits here at sundance. one of the things we saw this year was the film "beast of the southern wild" that debuted last year at sundance and now is nominated for four oscars, when i asked robert redford about that, he kind of puffed up a little bit, and said, yeah, when these things happen, i definitely become a proud papa. >> i get. >>> new jersey governor chris christie is known far beyond the garden state for his blunt talk. now he's turning his attent
think obama has papered over that for the last four years. but i think that's going to change here in the next few years. the first issue where i think we'll see a conversation on this is the question of entitlements. there are some folks in the democratic party who are happy to have a conversation on issues like the eligibility age for medicare. other democrats like sherrod brown, the senator from ohio, i talked to, they say hell, no, we are not going to have a conversation about that. that is core to our dna, and we're not going to move on that. >> j-mart, last time republicans had an internal debate about a lot of these issues, a lot of folks divided the party. you mention smd moderaed some m coming over to the democratic party. do you see a contentious primaries in the future for the 2014 midterms? >> well, look. i don't think you're going to see the sort of club-for-growth-style conservative on moderate attacks that you see in the gop. i think you're going to see some of that. keep in mind, the primary story began '06 when joe lieberman in connecticut faced a threat from his l
because we've seen already over the past four years what the obama administration's been doing with these air strikes. >> aerial drone strikes aside, does the cia need to pull out at the same time as the military? because doesn't the military help back up many of their operations? >> without a doubt. but the cia already maintains such a strong presence across the region it's unlikely that it's going to reduce that. there's some aspect of the cia's presence that's involved with helping the military, perhaps gathering intelligence precisely for operations that involve troops, but also that's going to shift perhaps to providing intelligence for these types of drones. a lot of that relies on human intelligence on the ground and assets on the ground. it's unlikely that is going to be reduced if the u.s. still feels it needs to have that presence as they've indicated they will. >> does the cia operate in its own kind of bubble? are they going to be able to as effectively bring this human intelligence with less people on the ground? >> well, from a technological point of view, phone i

of the reasons the american people gave me a second term was to take the tough decisions in the next four years that will carry our country through the next 50 years. we owe it to our country and to our people. chris: howard, everybody's talking about what kind of approach is obama going to take this second term. is he going to be conciliatory? or is he going to be mr. tough guy? >> he wants to get things done by being tough and even confrontation. in the first term he tried to change the tone of washington as the outcider, sort of by a combination of aloofness and steady thought. now it's in your face. and he's going to be that way with joe biden at his side. because this is how he validates his presidency. things like health care have to be implemented. things like gun laws and so forth have to be passed. he's decided that the way to get it done is to confront the republican party which is in a weakened state right now. chris: if he hits them hard, charles krauthammer said he's doing this not just to get his goals achieved but to crack the other party. to force them to choose and take the sub
